This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The front page has an article headed: "Acquitted" "A Verdict of Not Guilty Rendered in the Star-Route Trial" and more. Text takes up 2 1/2 columns.
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 12 pages, minor irregularity along the spine, very nice condition.
